We’re back for la rentrée* with some great news! The Jazz à la Villette festival just started yesterday and this year you have a great line up including: Cinematic Orchestra (tonight!), Roy Hargrove “RH Factor”, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Maceo Parker, Archie Shepp, Questlove/Tony Allen/Amp Fiddler and others.
* This is the tail-end of the high tourist season and what’s known as la rentrée, when Parisians return from their summer vacations. School starts again and shops and businesses get back into the swing of things. The bustle of the city picks up and visitors will be treated to more of an authentic atmosphere. Some say it’s Paris’ de facto nouvel an.
